Pleased with my stay as usual
by scheherezadeVA on 02 Jan 2017 (Solo Traveller)
I hadn't traveled to Egypt since 2008 and as I was planning my Nov-Dec 2016 trip I consulted Trip Advisor. (of course). I was surprised to see the last few reviews of the Victoria which were so negative. It didn't sound like the Victoria I knew, having stayed there many, many times on past trips. Through my contacts, I heard that the Victoria was closed for renovation, so made other arrangements. During my trip I was in the neighborhood and stopped by the Victoria. I found that while the Vi...
Beware of bedbugs
by Kimberly P on 17 Dec 2015 (Friends Traveller)
I stayed here as part of a contiki tour. It is the real budget Egypt experience. Contrary to others I like the old world feel of the lobby and the room. However I've read that the location is not in a good neighbourhood so it's not the best idea to wander outside your hotel unescorted. It is noisy because of the nearby roads (and everyone in Cairo honks their car horn instead of signalling...) and the prayer speakers at 5 am will probably wake you up. But I personally found it to be a cool new e...
Blood on the pillow and staff who harass you plus much more!
by Keira T on 19 Nov 2015 (Solo Traveller)
I arrived as part of a tour and the man who carried our bags up harassed four separate females who were traveling on their own (tried to tell one of them he was going to sleep in her bed with her - she had to pay him to leave the room! And he called anthers room in the middle of the night trying to get up there). One of the pillows had old blood stain on there! The bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned - hair all over the floor. The thing that held the shower hose up was broken so you had...
Worst hotel I have ever been to
by Mike W on 16 Nov 2015 (Friends Traveller)
Contiki Tour Nov 01 - Nov 15 Horrible location - this is in the slums of Cairo. Dont take that lightly. It really is located in the slums of Cairo. The locals loved to stare but were otherwise pretty much welcoming and we didn't feel unsafe. Customer service was horrible. One women on are trip had a nice midnight call from reception that was insighting he was coming up for sex. The bellman would stand there in the room after bringing our bags up without saying something - he only left after i ...
Comfy clean Bed. What more could you ask for after a busy day exploring!
by Tamara G on 07 Oct 2015 (Couple Traveller)
We stayed here 2 nights before and 2 nights after our Contiki tour and reading other reviews I was nervous. But it honestly was fine! The bed was actually very comfy. The rooms were very large. The bathrooms were a little dated and the only thing I could really complain about was the shower it wasn't flat it was almost like an area to sit. its hard to explain but I thought I would fall down and sprain my ankle. The staff also were so helpful booking taxis for us, helping us choose somewhere t...
